New to Natural Bed Company is our collection of Indian Style Beds beautifully crafted in our Sheffield workshop. This collection includes the Raj four poster bed, the Mandalay low bed with carved headboard posts and also the Samarkand. The latter is a similar design to the Mandalay, but a taller design.

These beds have been inspired by both Indian architecture and interior design. We have a collection of Indian-made beds designed a few years ago by Natural Bed Company. Moreover, these were made exclusively for us by a Bishnoi family. Our new collection is reminiscent of these beds, but without the hand carving and with a crisp, more modern feel.

These updated ‘Indian’ beds offer carved details and a subtly exotic look, while suiting western homes and interiors.

About The Raj Four Poster

This is perfect for a master bedroom with high ceilings. It is a stunning statement bed, which can be dressed either with or without a canopy for maximum impact. The bed is available in many sizes and in our full range of natural timbers. We work with oak, beech, maple, cherry, walnut and ash, or tulipwood stained in a dark wenge finish.

This bed will suit a variety of looks and bedding styles. From the Zari bedding shown on the Raj below, to modern soft linen bedding in neutral colours. For inspiration for using this bed in your interior design scheme, you can also take a look at our Pinterest boards – Exotic Beds & Bedroom Furniture or Four Poster Beds.

About the Samarkand Indian Look Bed

The Samarkand Indian bed is shown above in solid Tulipwood with a ‘wenge’ stain. This stain is a very dark espresso brown colour. The Samarkand is also available in our other hardwood timbers and can be ordered in a range of sizes. This is a mid-height bed (the height to the top of the bed slats is 38cm, the overall height is 115cm) which works well many of our side tables. This includes the tall Cube tables and under-bed drawers.

Like the Raj, this Indian style bed can be dressed in various ways. It looks impressive with the jewel tones of our Indian bedding. However, soft neutral bedding will suit a more modern look, while our patchwork bedding is perfect if you want to create a more rustic look.

About the Mandalay Indian Style Bed

The Mandalay bed is shown above in solid oak, which gives it a very fresh, modern look. A lower bed than the Samarkand (the height to the top of the bed slats is 30cm, the overall height is 92cm), shown above with the low Cube bedside tables – also in solid oak. In the same way as the Samarkand and Raj, the Mandalay is available to order in a wide range of timbers and sizes.

You can also find more inspiration using this bed in your home over on our Pinterest boards – ethnic interior design, solid wood beds or low beds.

We hope you like these striking new additions to the Natural Bed Company range.
